Going the ornament route? Awesome! There are plenty of “Ear” designs we love including these featuring Minnie Mouse, Chip ‘n Dale, and Jungle Cruise. Want something a bit different, the Starbucks Mug Ornaments are a great way to bring Disney elements to your tree. If these don’t speak to you, the assortment of Sketchbook Ornaments are currently Buy 2, Get $25 Off!

Speaking of Disney Ears, the quintessential headpiece is practically required for a visit to the parks! Go high end with Coach and Loungefly designs, or keep it simple and colorful with the new Aqua or Pride Collection Ears!

If you’re surprising the family with a Disney vacation, enhance the announcement with matching, customizable, luggage tags. We love these Star Wars designs Imperial and Rebel Alliance that feature our standard alphabet and Aurebesh!  

The inquisitive nature lover in your family will have a blast with National Geographic’s amazing science kits (Chemistry and Sensory) that include everything you need for several fun experiments. For the more independent student, a Microscope or the solar powered Mars Rover are wonderful gifts that will keep them busy for hours.

It’s never too early to start planning your indoor (and outdoor) decor. Light up your home with a Grogu lantern, and a Mando lawn statue. If classic Bounty Hunters are more your speed, a Boba Fett stocking is the way to go, and for your LEGO fan, the Home Alone House set is sure to be a fun project.
